NEW Protest Spring & Summer Collection for Women 2019
Bring on the sun! This season we’ve been inspired by Shangri-La. It’s the idea of paradise on earth. What would that be for you? An endless summer? Hanging out on the beach with your best friends until the sun goes down? We’ve taken inspiration from the beach but also from the summertime festival; the outfits, the music and those laid back vibes.
So here is our new collection, where the functional meets the fun and the good times roll.
The summertime Shangri-La arrives with the sun. Our paradise has splashes of a Miami fairground mixed with some LA fla¬vour. This collection is a wonder of print, texture and shine. A collection that is not just for the eyes, it’s our most textural range yet.
Here at Protest, we’re known for bringing the unexpected to functional clothing. This season is no exception. We’ve been following the rise of velvet in streetwear and our question was – how do we bring this fabulous look to swimwear. So we searched and we found fabric with the look and feel of velvet but with stretch and quick drying properties. Perfect. Our Bess bikini was born. In the same feel we’ve developed bikinis made from ribbed and matt shine fabric, bringing glamour fused with function to the beach.
This collection is a wonder of print, texture and shine.
Who said less is more? We love going into the details. Straps are knotted, panels are filled with crocheted lace and designs are embroidered. We go just that little bit further to create something special, something worthy. This season, we’ve ruffled and tied, embellished and adorned, to bring something unique to the simple.
Let’s highlight just a couple of looks that will be big this summer – the peekaboo and the wrap. Firstly, the peekaboo. The sun is out and it’s time to show some skin and have some fun. We’ve developed some swimwear styles with well-placed cut-outs revealing just a little extra. This peekaboo trend is going to be everywhere this season. Check out our Queen bikini. And here’s a look we just love! The wrap. This classic style is never out of fashion, it’s flattering and easy to wear. The wrap is a style that suits every shape and it can be worn day or night, dressed up or dressed down. Wrapped to perfection, check out our Dang dress, a must have for this summer.
Colour is key and this season we have two strong stories. The first story is earthy tones with beet red and olive green at its centre, the accent colours are bright. The second colour group is concrete (that’s a blue-grey) with blues and orange with a marvellous bright red as accent. These two groups are both combined with the ever-important pair, black and white.
Welcome to this season of the sun. We bring you a new collection Spring & Summer 2019 that will help you get the most out of you time in your summertime Shangri-la.
